1974 Yamaha Motobike

This is my 1974 Yamaha MotobikeI, serial # J60008059. My collecting of BMX Bikes started with my son seeing my 1976 DG Racer II in the garage of my mother’s house and saying what a junky old bike. Well that made me want to restore the DG and with the help and curse of E-Bay I was off and running. Once the DG was restored I found my self-wanting to collect all the BMX bikes that I had as a kid. After finding and restoring a 79 Mongoose Team Bike, I started looking for a Webco. After the Webco I started looking for a Littlejohn (1974-75) and a Dan Gurney monoshock (1974-75). Well I am still looking for these two bikes as frames to build up, so any help (with in reason and not causing me a divorce) would be great! Once I found the BMXMUSEUM.COM. and started looking at all the bike companies that made bikes from my era. I can still remember when these bikes first came out. My mom and dad took me to the Yamaha dealer in Rosemead CA to see them. I got this as junk from E-bay and rebuilt everything. As I remember there they were lined up in the front of the dealership along side all the other Motocross motorcycles. In side the dealership I got to sit on one and bounce like it was the real thing going off the biggest jump I could ever imagine. The only thing bad about this experience was that they cost a lot of money and I did not get one. I still really wanted one so I mowed the lawn of everyone in sight that summer. Buy the time I had enough money the buy one the first Webcos hit my area bike shop and the Yamaha became just a distant memory. Well except for my friends that had them that I beat at every race. I can still remember hearing “Damn, stupid cotter pins”.
